FDA told to act on wireless hacks

FDA told to act on wireless hacks | StarTribune.com:

"Wireless technology is creating new possibilities for implantable medical devices, from monitoring heart rhythms from a world away to adjusting the amount of insulin a diabetic receives.

But according to a just-released U.S. Government Accountability Office report, such technology has also opened the doors to hackers.

As a result, the GAO is calling for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to develop a plan enhancing its surveillance of medical devices. Part of that process will place a sharp eye on information security."
